Guitar Classics

Classic Guitars-2887

‘My guitar is not a thing.It’s an extension of myself. It’s who I am.’

Joan Jet


Guitar Classics is best described as a source of eye candy to anyone with a love of guitars. Located in Webbs Road in Clapham, the shop opened in 1997. Graham was originally a maths teacher living in Chelsea but following the sale of his flat in Gunter Road, to his neighbour, John Lydon, he moved south of the river and set up the shop.

Telephone Box Graveyard

Unicorn Phone Boxes_Michael Clement-68

Where Phone boxes go to die?

The red telephone box is an icon of 20th century British design. Once commonplace on every street corner and village green, the telephone box is now a rare sight.In 2002 there were 92000 BT payphones across the Uk. Today thanks to mobile phones and 3G/4G connectivity, just 9400 red traditional boxes remain.

Designed by Sir Giles Gibert Scott, the original prototype is still under the left arch at the entrance to the Royal academy.The first telephone kiosks appeared inside shops and hotels in the early 1900s. Since that date there have been a host of variants of design including the original K2 model which stood at 9ft 4in and measured 3ft 6 across.

However all is not lost as the various redesigned variants are highly sought after by collectors.There’s a cemetry like no other just outside London.Dubbed the largest know ‘Telephone Box Graveyard’ you’ll find around 70 Kiosks currently laid to rest. Many of these long lost icons are being brought back to life  by craftsmen at  Unicorn Restorations. Once cleaned and restored these can cost anywhere between £2000 and £10000 each.

Wooden Arms_Record Shop-1121

The long awaited new single, ‘Burial‘ by the five piece Wooden Arms, is soon to be released. The band have recorded ‘an album’s worth’ of new material and showcased some of the new songs at an intimate gig at Servant Jazz Quarters, Dalston, East London. In between the sound check and going on stage, I photographed the band in the nearby ‘Eldica Records‘ store.

Actor Cokey Falkow

portrait of actor Cokey Falkow, London

Actor Cokey Falkow was recently described by Time Out as ‘Fantastically Intelligent’. He is also multi talented, having a acting career that has seen him work worldwide, filming commercial campaigns and supporting roles in international film. And if that weren’t enough, Cokey has established himself as an edgy stand up act.

Recently I was fortunate to spend the afternoon with Cokey shooting on location in London. Great styling by Jade Alice Galston at ‘Fertha‘.
